Dynamic Quality of Service

If you like gaming and streaming videos, then you’ll benefit from Dynamic Quality of Service (QoS). Dynamic QoS resolves Internet traffic congestion when you have competing Internet demands at home. Dynamic QoS identifies your online activities by application and device, and then utilizes bandwidth allocation, and traffic prioritization techniques, to automatically allocate more bandwidth to latency sensitive applications like online gaming and video streaming, while ensuring that lower priority applications continue to work.


Perfect for these following uses

Extreme Gaming

With combined WiFi speeds up to 5.3 Gbps and advanced features like MU-MIMO, Smart Connect and Dynamic QoS, which helps prioritize your gaming activity on the network, you’ll have the advantage when taking on your gaming foes. Gigabit Ethernet ports let you connect your device via a wired connection to ensure you stay connected at top speeds. Game on with Nighthawk X8.

Go ahead, let everybody stream.

Nighthawk X8 provides seamless, simultaneous HD streaming to multiple devices. Tri-Band WiFi, and MU-MIMO help reduce buffering and jittery video. And now with port aggregation, you can double the connection speed for 4K HD streaming. A built-in DLNA-ready server and ReadyCLOUD add to your media enjoyment, allowing you to play and share your videos and music quickly and access your data easily.
